The start of 2011 has seen a few new releases from local artists via their bandcamp pages. One such joint comes from emerging beatmaker Ethereal. No Saliva Vol. 2 appears to be an ambient exploration of classic R&B/soul, as heard on such tracks as "Dapper Dan," "Love and Happiness," and a memorable chilled version of Michael Jackson's remixed "Rock With You."

Released in conjunction with locally-based music blog Greedmont Park, the mixtape isn't all chill grooves as it picks up a bit with "Ethermonstar," an especially noteworthy track because it has the womp-womp vibe of dub, but stripped-down and void of the heavy bass drop, giving it a soft, impactful sound. Also noteworthy: "Big Bluff," a dirty, little track that features raw snare snaps intermingled with soft brass horns. For those who like to blaze, err, chill out, No Saliva delivers on its promised "adventure in soundscapes."
